Nothing would be complete without a song. This tournament’s song by K’NAAN called Wavin’ Flag is just too cool. Can’t stop listening to it over and over. A song that touches everyone’s heart and soul.

The lyrics for the FIFA 2010 song – Wavin’ Flag

Ohhhh Ohhhh Ohhhhh Ohhhh

Give me freedom! Give me fire!
Give me reason! Take me higher!
See the champions, Take the field now!
You define us, make us feel proud!

In the streets our heads are liftin’
As we lose our inhibitions
Celebration it surrounds us, every nation all around us.

Singing forever young, singing songs underneath the sun!
Lets rejoice in the beautiful game
And together at the end of the day

WE ALL SAY

When I get older I will be stronger
They’ll call me freedom
Just like a wavin’ flag
And then it goes back
And then it goes back
And then it goes back
And then it goes

When I get older I will be stronger
They’ll call me freedom
Just like a wavin’ flag
And then it goes back
And then it goes back
And then it goes back
And then it goes

Ohhhh Ohhhh Ohhhhh Ohhhh

Give me freedom! Give me fire!
Give me reason! Take me higher!
See the champions, Take the field now!
You define us, make us feel proud!

In the streets our heads are liftin’
As we lose our inhibitions
Celebration it surrounds us, every nation all around us.

Singing forever young, singing songs underneath the sun!
Lets rejoice in the beautiful game
And together at the end of the day

WE ALL SAY

When I get older I will be stronger
They’ll call me freedom
Just like a wavin’ flag
And then it goes back
And then it goes back
And then it goes back
And then it goes

When I get older I will be stronger
They’ll call me freedom
Just like a wavin’ flag
And then it goes back
And then it goes back
And then it goes back
And then it goes

Ohhhh Ohhhh Ohhhhh Ohhhh

There are many versions of this wonderful song with different artists in different languages. This one below is an Arabic version of Wavin’ Flag with Nancy Ajram

The song below is the original.

The original song lyrics

When i get older, they’ll call me freedom
Just like a Waving Flag.

[Chorus]
When I get older, I will be stronger,
They’ll call me freedom, just like a Waving Flag,
And then it goes back, and then it goes back,
And then it goes back

Born to a throne, stronger than Rome
but Violent prone, poor people zone,
But it’s my home, all I have known,
Where I got grown, streets we would roam.
But out of the darkness, I came the farthest,
Among the hardest survival.
Learn from these streets, it can be bleak,
Except no defeat, surrender retreat,

So we struggling, fighting to eat and
We wondering when we’ll be free,
So we patiently wait, for that fateful day,
It’s not far away, so for now we say

[Chorus]

So many wars, settling scores,
Bringing us promises, leaving us poor,
I heard them say, love is the way,
Love is the answer, that’s what they say,
But look how they treat us, Make us believers,
We fight their battles, then they deceive us,
Try to control us, they couldn’t hold us,
Cause we just move forward like Buffalo Soldiers.

But we struggling, fighting to eat,
And we wondering, when we’ll be free
So we patiently wait, for that faithful day,
It’s not far away, but for now we say,

[Chorus] 2x

(Ohhhh Ohhhh Ohhhhh Ohhhh)
And everybody will be singing it
(Ohhhh Ohhhh Ohhhhh Ohhhh)
And you and I will be singing it
(Ohhhh Ohhhh Ohhhhh Ohhhh)
And we all will be singing it
(Ohhh Ohh Ohh Ohh)

[Chorus] 2x

When I get older, when I get older
I will be stronger, just like a Waving Flag,
Just like a Waving Flag, just like a Waving flag
Flag, flag, Just like a Waving Flag
